Derrick Rose’s adidas signature line continues to grow with another bright colorway designed for Rose’s trip to the Staple’s Center in Los Angeles next month for the 2011 NBA All Star Game. Derrick Rose’s first shoe in what will likely be a long line of signature models has helped Rose to achieve the best numbers of his young career. Rose has improved this season in nearly every statistical category including points, assists, rebounds, steals, blocks, and probably most important, three point field goal percentage. With Rose’s threat a legitimate concern from outside, defenders will need to play close defense, making his quickness attacking the basket makes him more dangerous than ever for opponents.

One of the highest scoring shoes from this year’s basketball shoes, Derrick’s signature model the adidas adiZero Rose scored an A- in our Performance Review with “Simply put, it has some of the best court feel I’ve ever experienced.” This bright yellow colorway will take its place on the feet of the leader of the Chicago Bulls as he looks to lead the Eastern Conference All Star Team to victory. Sprintskin technology helps keep the weight of the adidas adiZero Rose one of the lightest basketball shoes available. Adiprene cushioning is combined with Pure Motion Pods, adidas’ Torsion System, and Cilia Traction surface to create one of the best basketball shoes of the year.

Available at Eastbay in February.
